Audit trail of copies?

From: Steve Constable <steve.constable_at_hotmail.com>

I want to be able to show a machine generated (IE non-human) audit trail of
svn copies within a repository.
For example here is a possible file layout of a project:

Now, if I want to create a new project (project_C) but I want to inherit
files from project_A and project_B I know I can do an 'svn cp' to do that.
And I know I can of course create my own log files too. But what I'd like is
a human proof way of showing for certain that (for example)
/project_C/cpp/file_A.cpp actually came from /project_A_cpp/file_A.cpp
including the repository number. I thought I had seen this before but after
trying in both svn and in TortoiseSVN I can't seem to reproduce the
information (or I can't find it). I don't care if this info is in the
TortoiseSVN graph or in the logs. But I'd like a machine generated message
that clearly indicates where a file was copied from, when this was done and
what repository version the file came from.
Any help is appreciated!
